Synopsis
Half a century after its premiere on The Old Vic stage, ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD, the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight, returns to The Old Vic in its 50th anniversary celebratory production.
Against the backdrop of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, this mind-bending situation comedy sees two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz (Daniel Radcliffe) and Guildenstern (Joshua McGuire), take centre stage with David Haig as The Player. Increasingly out of their depth, the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of this iconic drama. In a literary hall of mirrors, Stoppard’s brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth sees us witness the ultimate identity crisis.
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire and David Haig.

Critic Reviews
The show is fantastically light on its feet and there are moments combine weird beauty and sublime silliness
The Independent
Radcliffe’s Rosencrantz and [Joshua] McGuire’s Guildenstern are a delight as the discombobulated double-act
The Telegraph
Stoppard’s sprightly comedy… still shines brightly
